Designed by John Dearle and taken from the "Orchard" tapestry woven in 1890.

The Orange Bush tapestry is made in France now, but was originally designed and woven by Morris & Company around 1900. William Morris is well-known as the founder of the English firm of Morris & Company, whose workshops were established at Merton Abbey in Surrey.

From studying an old French Arts and Crafts manual, William Morris taught himself the technique of tapestry-weaving, and spent many hours weaving his first experimental tapestry by hand in his bedroom at Kelmscott House in Hammersmith, London. Morris thereafter taught his workmen the technique, and is thereby attributed with reviving the craft of tapestry-weaving in England during the last quarter of the 19th century.

This beautiful tapestry is woven on a jacquard loom by skilled weavers, keeping alive the centuries old tradition of tapestry manufacturing from generation to generation.

Composition
80% cotton, 16% viscose, 4% polyester
